Thread sealant for drinking water applications

Loctite 5776 is the new thread sealant from Henkel specifically engineered for metal threads. The product has obtained German approvals for use in potable water (KTW) and gas (DVGW) piping systems.

Under its Loctite brand, Henkel offers a broad portfolio of professional sealants for reliable and durable locking and sealing of threads, fittings and pipe unions of different materials, surface finishes and diameters. Loctite 5776 was specifically engineered for sealing metal threads and meets the requirements of the KTW potable water approval for cold and warm water piping systems. The product prevents threads from working loose as well as leakages resulting from of impacts and vibration. In addition, it provides lasting protection against corrosion. The sealant cures in the absence of air, providing a low-pressure seal between the threaded piping parts in a very short time after application.

Large variety of thread sealants from Henkel
Developed for industrial applications, sealants from Henkel offer many application-related advantages over conventional sealants like PTFE tape, hemp or paste. They are one-component, solvent-free, gap-filling products with optimal flow behavior. All of these features combine to assure long-term sealing performance even under the severest vibration, chemical attack or thermal fluctuations.
